Progressing student enrolments

Are you thinking of studying with us again next semester and completing a new qualification?

Or do you still have units within your current qualification to complete?

If you do please read the below information carefully and follow the process that best applies to you.

Advancing students have completed their full qualification (for example, Certificate III) and are advancing to the next qualification in that pathway (for example, Certificate IV).

To advance you need to apply online to TAFE Admissions. If you applied by the first-round application date you will have your place in the course assessed with other applicants who applied in the same intake period. Be sure to include your current study in your application, as the assessment team will see you are advancing and this will help your chances to be accepted into your next qualification.

If you apply after the applications close date you will be considered as an Expression of Interest for remaining places after the first eligible applicant lists have been exhausted.
 

International students: please go to our 'Are you progressing' section below - the advancing process does not apply to you.

You are a progressing student if you have completed at least one semester of units in your current qualification (for example, Diploma - Semester 1) and are progressing to the next semester of units in the same qualification (for example, Diploma - Semester 2).

To progress (continue) as a full-time student you will need to do one of two things:

  • Pay in full by credit card or finalise your VET Student Loan application: call our Enrolment Call Centre or look out for a reminder email from us.
  • Continue or start a payment plan: come to campus.

For full time study you won’t need additional paperwork and we will already have your study plan ready in our system to enrol you into your next units. 

To progress (continue) as a part-time student, you will need to come to ANY campus on the part- time enrolment days. We will assist you based on available units that align with your study plan. You will be able to pay in full, or start/continue a payment plan or finalise your VET Student Loan application during your campus visit on either of these days.
 

You are a progressing apprentice if you have completed one block of units in a semester in their current qualification and are progressing to their next block of units in the next semester.

To progress you need to check the Call Up Letter you and your employer will receive from our Apprenticeships office. The letter will include your classes and timetables. On your first day of class visit our customer service staff to confirm your enrolment.

Make sure you bring with you your USI, concession card, and be ready to make a payment plan or pay upfront (if your employer is not paying your fees).
